February 28, 2017  Aerial Hydromulching Taking Place March 2

On Thursday, March 2, the County of Orange / OC Parks will provide aerial hydromulch and seeding application to a 5-acre landslide area within the Los Trancos section of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. The specific area for this project is east of Newport Coast Drive and south of Pelican Hill Road / Ocean Ridge Drive.

Hydromulching, or hydroseeding, is a planting process that involves spraying a mix of seed and mulch. It is often used as an erosion control technique rather than the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing dry seed. The seed mix will consist of native plants common to the area and will assist with reducing erosion with native plant restoration within the landslide area. The project will use a Bell helicopter, hydromulch mixing truck, support vehicle and trailer, as well as a hydromulch spreader bucket.

The work should take no more than one day and will be postponed if rain occurs.

We ask for the public’s cooperation to stay out of the area during that time.
